The hip-hop industry moves pretty fast. Add Twitter's influence and it moves even faster. The social media site allows fans to not only interact with their favorite artists -- when they do the tweeting themselves -- but keep up with every bit of news from the genre.

Whether fans' interests lie with the underground emcees or the superstar rappers, there's someone on Twitter to help keep them connected. But if following hip-hop news isn't exactly your forte, at the very least you can watch the stars' joke, tease, throw subliminal shots and engage in Twitter beef firsthand. Nothing beats watching keyboard-thug drama unfold before your eyes.
